You have two options..one is single stage and the other is base/clear.. i and others prefer base/clear for the range of effects obtainable and I think base clear is actually easier to do to get that deep shine folks like..

Base/clear is definetly easier and more user friendly.

i would go with base and clear..if you get runs or fish eyes you can sand it out..alot of sanding with base and clear spraying tho...gives you a good workout.
